Hi Milisia, I am researching my AA/Native WEEDEN,WEELDON,WHEELDON,WHELDON,WILDEN,and any of the other 21 spellings which I have found w/little success. Hoping that you may find this of interest and perhaps that you can be of help. Read w/interest your posting of MATHEWS will of SC; believe that my ggrandfather, WM LAWRENCE WEELDON, Black, was born in Sumter, SC in 1829. Have heard from no one who claims kinship to my line in 13yrs of research, but refuse to give up. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
